The ZLS-05 police revolver, also known as the "Type 05", is a Chinese revolver first publicized in 2006. It was specifically designed for arming various elements of Chinese Police like traffic police, local municipal police, etc., which previously were unarmed. It uses a custom 9mm cartridge specifically designed for police use, with a lethal version and a less-lethal rubber version; it's claimed that the 9mm cartridge was based on the .38 S&W cartridge.
The revolver was designed by Huaqing Machinery (a.k.a. Factory 216), a subsidiary of the China South Industries Group. It was manufactured by Huaqing Machinery (whose guns feature a "triangle 216" marking) and Jiangsu Xinsu Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (whose guns feature a "BAM" marking).
The revolver has two export versions exported by the Norinco export company (not to be confused with the Norinco Group): the Norinco NP-216, which uses the special 9mm cartridge, and the Norinco NRP-9, which uses .38 Special.
